Purpose

This guide describes how to install and upgrade Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Release 5.4. It also contains information and instructions for installing and upgrading the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Jabber integration.

This guide does not describe how to configure or maintain Web Conferencing Release 5.4. Nor does it describe how to install or use additional Cisco Unified MeetingPlace applications that can reside on the same server as Web Conferencing.

Audience

This guide is for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system administrators. It assumes the following considerations:

You have a thorough understanding of voice and data terminology and concepts.

You are familiar with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, networking concepts, and Microsoft Windows software-based web servers.

After you install Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing, you are also responsible for the following tasks:

Installing and configuring third-party applications that are not currently available to Web Conferencing (for example, optional audio tools such as Windows Media Server).


Note Installation of third-party software is subject to the "Terms for Single Sign On Software Integration" section on page 7.


Working with others, such as the corporate web master and network administrator.

Performing maintenance and troubleshooting on an ongoing basis.

Planning storage and purging requirements.
